Cleaning out your closet

I've read all the way through this thread now, though I got to page 3 and just couldnt keep reading until I'd combed through my wardrobe and drawers again haha.
I regularly detox my wardrobe, but still somehow end up keeping stuff that I've had for several years which I know I will either never wear or don't even like any more. I'm 20 now, just coming into my final year at uni, and have (or I should say 'had') so much stuff that's just completely not me anymore. It got so frustrating to gaze into my cupboard and have so many clothes yet nothing I wanted to wear. So this time I took it a lot more seriously and threw out the real bad stuff, bagged a load up for charity, and stuck a ton on ebay. Someone earlier mentioned sticking everything up starting at $1 or something, which is what I've done with most of it (unless its more special) just so it's gone at least and the amount of stuff I have on there it will add up nicely.
Anyway, rambling. Just went through all my make-up too and threw out the ridiculous shades of eyeliner and nails varnish (green nails and turquoise eyes anyone?) that I've kept hold of in case I had some crazy party/fancy dress thing... No! Gone! And chucked loads of cheap jewellery out too which I've been building up over the years, thanks to the likes of Topshop.
This thread has inspired me to do this in all aspects though so I'm working on everything bit by bit. I need to organise and file all of my bank statements/payslips/uni feedback/receipts etc.
Oh I pulled a load of crappy 'chick lit' books off my shelf to that have been given to me and I've never read and never intend to. They'll be gone soon.
Basically, I'm trying to strip everything down back to basics, I have too much 'crap' basically, noone needs this much stuff, and most of it isn't 'me' anyway. This whole thing is SO refreshing
Maybe I need to learn to not clutter up my replies on tfs next...
